Valencia CF after Mubarak Wakaso

Valencia CF is planning to acquire Mubarak Wakaso who currently plays for Chinese football club Shenzhen FC in a bid to reinforce its midfield, which has been the weak link in many of the matches this season. Reportedly Bordalas is desperate for to strenghten the midfield and doesn't see Uros Racic or Daniel Wass as adequate for what he needs. He is valued at about 2 million euros and he would jump at the chance to return to Spain, especially for a team like Valencia CF. 

He is described as a midfield destroyer and someone who is predominantly defense oriented, so its unclear how technical he is and if he is going to be able to help with control of the midfield which in my opinion has been the biggest issue for us this season. I don't think a defensive minded player is exactly what we need, but rather a technical player that can help us retain possession and pass the ball around with accuracy. 

Either way before Mubarak Wakaso can join Valencia CF the club needs to sell some of its players to make room for new arrivals. Valencia CF already has plans to offload players like Jason, Manu Vallejo, Rivero and Fabio Blanco, but it remains to be seen if all of these players have suitors lined up to acquire them.
